Many of you have already seen this, but there's an interesting post on the Lost Live Dead blog about the Winterland New Year's Eve show in '68...
http://lostlivedead.blogspot.com/2011/12/december-31-1968-winterland-grateful.html

This would no doubt be a classic show if we had it - ironically, it was taped in 16-track, but had recording problems and was erased. Little is known about the evening!

"If you include Jerry Garcia shows and guest appearances, the Dead played 15 of 17 New Year's Eves in the San Francisco Bay Area, including every year from 1970 to 1992."

Anyone else confused by the sentence above? If they played every NYE from 1970 to 1992 that's already 23 New Year's Eves. Where does this "15 of 17" business come from?

It's a typo. Fixed, now thanks for the proofreading (moral: cut-and-paste is your friend, but not a trustworthy friend).

The correct number is 24 out of 26, from 1966 to 1991 (they had played 15 out of 17 from 1966 to 1981, which is where the snippet came from).

thank you for catching my mistake. No need to apologize--policemen are public servants, keeping us safe from error and harm.

In the United States, New Year's Eve is celebrated with official parties and family-oriented routines. Get-togethers usually focus on shedding or raising an item during the countdown, particularly around the Northeastern. New Year's Eve is a public holiday in the United States. Since 1907, the "ball drop" in New York City's Times Square has been a major component of the celebration, and possesses already been observed through practically one million individuals every year.
